Wills Backpack

Wills Backpack

Wills does it again!  Pictured above is their new unisex Backpack.   Made with pebble grain faux leather, this stylish bag looks right at home next to something from Matt and Nat.  But we really dig the simplicity and versatility of this one more than any other faux leather bag we’ve seen .  As with all Wills products, this is 100% vegan and ethically made in Portugal.  It has a front organizer compartment and two interior compartments.  We love that the inside is waterproof, in a dope contrast red color.  If you’re toting around a laptop, they got you too – this bag fits up to 14″ machines.

Available at Wills for $122 (click on link to site for more pictures too)

Vegan Shoe Policies 2015 by Vegan8

Hello internet people, we are very sorry we have been on hiatus for so long.  We had some offline stuff to take care of which stole away precious time to continue our work on VK.  But we’re back and we have a good one for you today.  Many of you have checked out the site by Vegan8, and especially his shoe surveys which lays out very simply which shoe companies offer vegan shoes.  We learned recently that he completed his 2015 survey, so we wanted to share that with you as soon as possible.  In addition to sharing his site, we wanted to re-post his table here, but annotated with some of our comments.  Don’t forget to click on the brand links – Vegan8 has provided additional information, including the exact correspondence and links to the relevant site within the company.

We’d also like to add that this is a great reference but it is by no means comprehensive.  This entire site isn’t either but it can be used as one big resource for finding various companies policies.  We find that the best way to do so is to browse by tags, or by search.  Some of our information is dated but feel free to email or comment if you have any particular questions.  Thanks again for visiting and keeping this site going – we are psyched that so many people around the world are going cruelty free!

Wills – Wide Styles

Wills Low Booties

Today is a good day for the vegans out there with wide feet.  Well, let me qualify that – today is good for the vegan females out there with wide feet, because Wills recently dropped a bunch of models with “regular” or “wide” fits.  It’s hard enough finding cruelty free shoes in general, it must be that much more difficult getting a non-regular fit.  Fortunately, we can show you a little bit right now, and promise that in the future we will be on the lookout.  But for now, take this in, if you don’t like what you see, at least check Wills out and encourage them and other companies to keep making the wide styles.

Wills City Derbys Black

We were lucky enough to get our hands on another pair of Wills Vegan Shoes, and we took the these pair for a spin.  We found a quiet little alley near a famous park in Greenwich Village and snapped a few photos.  One of the best things about this city is discovering its hushed side streets – this one was tucked away in the middle of the busiest neighborhoods.

Our model is wearing the City Derbys in Black.  We were drawn to these because of their versatility; we could see them being worn to work or with more formal attire.   You can’t go wrong pairing them with a dark suit.  The silhouette is a touch on the formal side – the toe box is pointier than we would prefer, and we think that may not go so well with certain outfits.  And they’re not quite formal enough to wear with a tux, though you may be able to pull it off.

Interview With Wills Vegan Shoes & All Black Everything

We go a real treat for you today.  A lot of you may already be familiar with Wills Vegan Shoes, and we’ve been big fans since its inception in 2013.  It was just what we were looking for: dope vegan shoes, made fair trade, and offered at a very reasonable price.  We’ve watched excitedly as they grew – it seems like they add new styles on a weekly basis.  We were also lucky enough to get our hands a few pairs, and we were not disappointed.  So we are very excited to share an interview with Will Green, the founder of (the eponymous) Wills Vegan Shoes.  Plus, check out some of our picks, all in black!

Winter Boot 2014 Roundup Part 2

Brave Gentleman Visionary Boot

Visionary Boot by Brave Gentleman, available at Vegan Chic

Here’s part 2 of our 2014 winter boot find.  This time around, we are emphasizing form over function.  We have no expectations regarding the warmth or water resistance of any of the dressier looking boots.  Most of them look seem they can handle some rain and some minor snow.  But a lot of these we wouldn’t advise using for real bad days.  We hope that between our two posts that you find something that is suitable to your needs.  Enjoy!

Wills Desert Boot

Wills Desert Boot Taupe

Happy Holidays everyone!  Sorry for our prolonged absence, we were out doing our vacation things and as such were a little unplugged.  I’m sure a lot of you were too, and we think that that’s a good thing.  But we’re back, and hoping for a great New Year!

Today we are taking a look at Wills, a superb new shoe label out of England [Thank you James for the tip!].  Their men’s collection is a solid selection of semi-casual to dressy.  Of course, they’re all vegan (microfiber suede and leather) and fair trade (workers are paid in accordance with European guidelines).  They’re also priced reasonably, even after you convert the price from British Pounds.
